    Default How much solids does your 7 month old eat a day?

    DD is almost 7 months and we started solids around 5.5 months.
    She eats very little solids. How much does your little one eat a day at that age?

    Around 3 to 5 pots of homemade food, some days she eats more then others (depending on her teeth I think, she's started teething although none have broken through yet).

    We did BLW with both girls and delayed solids till 6/6.5mths. At 7 mths both girls could munch on half a slice of toast or 1/2 banana or a boiled egg for brekky. Maybe 1-2 pikelets.

    Lunch was usually steamed veges with grilled fish/chicken or 1-3 tuna cakes or meat balls.

    Plus bf 5-7 times a day.

    Dinner was usually pasta and sauce or rice/curry etc about 1/3-1/2 cup worth.

    We started solids at 5.5 months about 3 weeks ago.

    Ds has solids three times a day. He has anywhere from 2-4 tablespoons of food each meal. And often acts like he wants more. I make my own food so I struggle to know how much to give him.

    He always has his breastfeed first though.

    it is all depend on baby, we've started solids after 6 months and at 7 she was eating apple puree, banana, mashed steamed vegetables...and puffs to develop her fingers...about 9 months she tried meat in jars, more fruits, pasta, cereal...you have to introduce new food gradually, one product in a week. The point is not to overload baby's digestive system.

    DS is 6.5 months and he will eat whatever we give him. He's eating about 3-4 tbs of food 3 times a day, and a tub of baby yoghurt in the afternoon. He has 150mls bottle of milk 5 times a day; I offer milk before his feeds. He's very enthusiastic about his food but he turns away when he's not hungry or doesn't want anymore.

    He's a little string bean, though, and very active, so I'm not too concerned. Although sometimes I wonder where such a teensy baby puts it all!

    My son is 8 months old and doesn't eat very much at all. He's bottlefed but isn't that all interested in food. He has 4 teeth so is able to eat toast if I give it to him. He usually steals his sisters food. But I will feed him mashed meat and vege every night and most nights he eats it other times not interested. Ill slowly introduce more solids into his diet. He's a chubba so hes thriving off his milk so i'm not too worried.

    started my dd on solids at 4.5mths. AT 7mths she was having morning bottle, 1/2cup rice cereal with fruit, bottle, 1/2cupmashed vegies, bottle, yoghurt and a rusk, bottle before bed for the night.
    she was never really into solids and now she's 2 only ever eats what she needs to.. i think we started her too early on food.
